An inspiring artist with a sensual message.

The mixing of art with pleasure. Hmmm, sounds interesting, right? Well, the combination is exactly what artist Whitney Austin expresses through her creative masterpieces. Not only is erotic art her specialty, but Whitney also wants to make sure she inspires people to take the leap of faith, to be powerful and love the beauty of black power. Growing up, with a passion for creativity like no other, Whitney knew that being a creative was the only way for her to reach and conquer her artistic goals. Not stopping there, Whitney knows her journey has only just begun!

What inspired you to do art? Was it something that you’ve always wanted to do?

Growing up as a child I absolutely loved creating! I was passionate about drawing, and that grew rapidly from early childhood through high school. Both my parents motivated and inspired me to be disciplined with my craft. Most of all, they told me to enjoy every step of the process. After high school, however, I almost went ten years without creating. I was figuring what I wanted to do with my life. It wasn’t until my late twenties that I actually started painting again. My grandfather passed away, and I created a portfolio of him for his funeral. That’s what actually introduced me back to art after all those years.
